Well, well, can things get any better?!
The Official Site have some very nice news today with Wilfred Bouma saying all he needs now is match fitness as his long battle to come back from his awful ankle injury is well and truly over!
He said: 'It's been a long time since I have been able to train. I was fit again in October and raring to go but then I picked up what they call a 'turf-toe'. That was really bad luck. But now I am training again. It's just so good to be back on the pitches again. It's now a case of getting match fitness. To be fair, of course, at times it was hard but when you've got a target in your mind and something you want to achieve, it makes it a little bit easier.'
Wilf has also thanked the medical staff and fans for all their help through this tough 14 month period.
'To be fair, sometimes you hear from injured players at other clubs and they tell you they don't feel part of it. At Villa I have been out a long time but I am still in the middle of the group. There was never a point where I felt they were leaving me hanging around. That helped me a lot through my rehab and recovery.
Adding, 'The fans really did made a difference. You just want to be back involved and hear them chanting your name again. The first time I come back on the pitch and hear the fans singing it could be a bit emotional.'
